The trails at Chalco Hills are wide trails, a lot of straight-a-ways and no tight turns or switchbacks. Rolling hills with no terribly steep climbs, but the elevation gain does add up.  About 80% trail, some pavement and “big rock” (gravel). These trails are used for cross country in the area so they are challenging, yet fun!
